This guide will explain how to request materials that are not owned by the Universal Orlando Foundation Library. For more assistance, please Contact us.

What You Need to Know

  • Check With Us First - It is often a good idea to check with a librarian before requesting materials from other libraries. We may be able to suggest other ways of accessing the information you need.
  • Who May Use It - Current UCF students, staff, and faculty may use Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
  • How Much Does It Cost - ILL requests are generally free for current UCF students, staff, and faculty. The ILL department will contact you in the rare event that an item is too costly to obtain.
  • What Can Be Borrowed - Most print items and photocopies of articles can be borrowed from other libraries. The following types of items generally cannot be borrowed from other libraries: entire issues of journals, rare or fragile items, audiovisuals (unless held at a UCF library), books designated as non-circulating (reference, reserve, special collections, etc.), photocopied articles that exceed 50 pages, and course textbooks.
  • How Long Does It Take - Materials requested from UCF-affiliated libraries (main library, CMC, regional campus libraries, etc.) will generally be delivered to Rosen within 2-5 business days, although longer delays are possible. Articles requested from non-UCF libraries generally take 3-7 business days to be delivered.  Books requested from non-UCF libraries may take 15 or more business days to be delivered. Longer delays are possible. Some materials cannot be obtained through ILL at all; we’ll notify you if that occurs.
  • For More Information - Visit the Interlibrary Loan page for more ILL policies and procedures.
